New York Go League forming

Tuesday June 21, 2022

Howard Wong is starting a NY Go League, open to all players with stable go ranks in the AGA, CGA, EGF, or an online rank at a credible server. The league will be a round robin tournament, spanning two months, and is set to begin on June 25th with a registration deadline of June 22nd; register here.

All online games can be played in either OGS or KGS, on 19×19 boards with AGA rules (7.5 komi) with color being chosen randomly by the server. All games must also be played with time control settings of 20 minutes main time and 5 periods of 30 second byo-yomi. All matches will have zero handicaps. Player color will be decided by the computer. 

Games may also be played in person if both players agree, a timer  must be used and the game must be recorded.
